If ever returning to Santiago this is the place I'll be staying in! Hostel itself is clean and modern with all the comforts of home and the atmosphere to relax. The patio was beautiful and the communal terrace has great views of Cerro San Christobel. Initially booked a double and was upgraded to a deluxe double on arrival, clean, comfy,...

Overall, our stay at Hostal Caracol was ok. The twin bedroom we booked was small but enough for a few nights. The bathroom was very small however. Generally, there was hot water and the pressure was not to bad. The bathroom could have use a deep clean up as well. Common room were spacious and mostly clean. Breakfast was ok,...

I visited Chile for about 2 weeks in July 2013. I used Santiago as "home base". This place is AWESOME!

The hostel is located in Recoleta, in the Bellas Artes District. It's a short walk from the Bellas Artes museum and from Patio Bellavista, a great courtyard of shops and restaurants. It's a ~10 minute walk to the metro. It is not in a high-noise area but does have some street noise which can be problematic if you want to...

I stayed here because it was rated well, but aside from a decent breakfast spread and a speedy computor, there was no reason to hang around. The common areas were clean but the bathrooms and dormitory had really grimy walls which were noticeable even in poorly lit rooms, there was grunge in the sink drain, and none of the shower...

“We got a double ensuite room with balcony but it was right next to the common area balcony so we ended up spending more time on that as it was bigger with tables and chairs - so probably wasn't worth spending the extra money to get a balcony for us. But the room was great.”
